to go in different direction. the unfortunate and very tragic incident in connecticut in sandy hook elementary school of course heightened everybody's awareness of what violence can really be all about. and as we have been not only responding, reacting to this national tragedy that i think president obama has adequately described as broken all of our hearts, and in every funeral that has taken place, for those 20 innocent children and six innocent adults in the school districts, and school administrators, we obviously have shared in that very tragic event, all of us. it has touched everybody across this country. san francisco is no different. and i have shared that emotional experience with the supervisor and everybody here, in our law enforcement, and in our health department as well. the question for us, then, is what do we do about it? and not only can we share in this tragedy and signal our sympathies to the families as we've done, but we've got to do something more. and this is where i want to make sure i recognize all of the people that are in that effort of doing something ab

with 64 votes. we passed the hurricane sandy emergency relief bill also in bipartisan fashion, with 62 votes. we had open debate, we had discussions, we had amendments, and we passed legislation. particularly we passed by a powerful bipartisan vote of 89-8, a bill that avoided tax increases for 99% of americans and extended emergency unemployment benefits for another year and protected us from the fiscal cliff. when it comes to legislating, the senate actually has a pretty strong bipartisan record. how did those senate bills do on the house side? well, the house couldn't pass its own highway bill. congress has been doing highway bills since the eisenhower years. this isn't rocket science. the house couldn't do one. the best the house of representatives could do was to pass a short-term extension that allowed some of their members to get to conference on the senate bill. but they took no bill into conference because they couldn't pass one. even then they delayed the conference negotiations and they cost the united states of america an entire summer construction season for highway constr
approved a $50-billion aid package for hurricane sandy relief, and senate majority leader harry reid said yesterday the senate could move swiftly to pass it. the controversial keystone xl pipeline may be back in play. the project has received approval from nebraska governor dave heineman this week. heineman approved a re-routing of the pipeline, which would transport crude oil from canada to the u.s. heineman said the route for the pipeline now avoids the state's sandhills region, which enviromentalists previously opposed, calling the region "environmentally sensitive." any move forward will have to be approved by the obama administration, which blocked progress of the project a year ago. superstorm sandy is taking a toll on corporate america. verizon blamed its $4.23-billion loss on storm costs. travelers insurance company turned a $394-million profit, but that was down from $618 million last year because of hurricane- related expenses. and delta airlines, which cancelled nealry 20,000 flights, had a net income of $7 million, off $425 million from a year earlier. despite near constant pl

at the close of the last semester. we were shocked and saddened by the tragedy that took the lives at sandy hook elementary school. we want to give our most sincere condolences to our colleagues and friends and fellow americans in connecticut. but we are very fortunate in san francisco, as we have had an opportunity to reflect with the established partnerships we have in this city. not only with the city of san francisco and the mayor's office. but the police department. the department of public health. our community-based organizations. and all the multitudes of others in this community that work with us arm in arm to provide services to our students and community. we strive to bring safety to our workplaces. and safety to our schools. so that our students can thrive. and our educators can teach. we are fortunate to have trained professionals on our campuses. including social workers and nurses and wellness services. and ladies and gentlemen, if not for the largess of the san francisco voting community, we would not be able to do this. we want to thank you for the voting of our schools. wh

as republicans here. i sort of feel like this is an effort at a bipartisan -- bipartisanship. i know sandy had to leave. we were talking about the ratings agencies and what debate. reading the executive management report from the ratings agency that also pointed to the congress that one of the reasons -- huge reason for the downgrade, they didn't feel that the congress had the political will to address the spending crisis that we are in either. so that was also a big part of the downgrade of our credit rating. now i think, you know, we are trying to exercise the political will to address our spending by having a budget which you can't really talk about appropriation bills and all of these kinds of things in my mind having this saddam continuing resolutions to fund the government forever is unsustainable. you need to pass a budget to begin with a foundation. >> mr. cole, i also talked to attorneys, our attorneys, some other attorneys, not just on our staff and i tell them, talk to me like i can understand you. because they talk too much legal lease. i ask them, if i get a paycheck in my account

in claims from superstorm sandy, but that didn't hurt profits as much as analysts feared. travelers earned 72 cents per share last quarter, only about half what it earned a year earlier but more than five times estimates. shares responded nicely to the surprise, rallying 2.1%, pushing shares to a new high. two items to focus on with the two big phone companies. first, a.t.&t. is expanding its wireless business. the company is buying the retail operations, subscribers, and, most importantly, the wireless licenses of atlantic tele- network. the price was $780 million. a.t.&t. shares gained 0.5% while atlantic tele-network jumped 12.3%. the wireless carriers have been looking for spectrum to expand their services. verizon, meantime, reported quarterly results a nickel less than expected. like other carriers, while it sold a record number of smart- phones over the holidays, many of them came with heavy subsidies hurting short term profits. the stock gained 0.9%. it hit a two-month low last week. tomorrow night, we will hear from apple about its holiday quarter. this quarter, the anticipation h

, sandy levin. interestingly enough, sandy and i actually share act. sometimes you hear the term, reagan democrats. it was from our county. you have two. you have two very divergent beliefs coming out of a county. but one thing that is a very commonality of think of a county like mccomb, is we have budgets. we pass budgets on time. we balance them. we just think you should have a budget. interestingly enough, just before i came here, before we had our vote series, i was doing something i call congress in the classroom where i was going to call it skype, but it's the new technology as uvo. i talk to all these kids in my district, my part of the county, about things that are going on in congress. i was telling them about this particular piece of legislation that was going to come before the congress tomorrow and tell them that the senate had actually not passed a budget in almost four years. they said, how could that be? isn't there anything you can do to force that? i said, we're going to try tomorrow and it's unfortunate it has to come to that. whatever kind of budget the senate would pa
and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a couple days later, he narrowly hung onto his speakership as 10 republicans did not vote for him. now -- and right after that, they ended up passing a hurricane sandy bill. even that only received 49 republican votes. all that as a backdrop, house leaders last week went to williamsburg to figure out the task force on the debt ceiling on the across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester, coming up. also, at the end of march, we have the continuing resolution, because the senate has not passed a full budget and the two chamber is not agree to a budget, but they have been working off a continuing resolution which funds the government for certain amount of time. it will end on march 27. house leaders tried to put
to make whole the victims of hurricane sandy. each of these initiatives passed the senate on a bipartisan basis but was left to languish by the house. the senate will continue to help our fellow americans to help with hurricane sandy before another similar disaster strikes. hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses were destroyed in new york, new jersey and new england and tens of thousands of americans were left homeless by this destructive storm. we have a responsibility to aid our country men as they rebuild their lives and communities as we have after terrible floods, fires and storms in other parts of our nation. once we complete that vital legislation, the senate will take action to make this institution that we all love -- the united states senate -- work more effectively. we'll consider changes in the senate rules. because of this -- because this matter warrants additional debate, we will follow the precedent set in 2005 and again in 2011 to reserve the right of all senators to propose changes in the senate rules and we will explicitly not act in acquiescing in carrying out al
